Dear sir,
this is no scam, those books are available only to certain persons with a special device issued by the Archive.org .

Please consult the description at http://archive.org/details/printdisabled :

We are also offering accessible versions of our restricted books. These books are in a protected DAISY format, and can only be read on compatible reading devices with the appropriate key installed. The Internet Archive is using an encryption key from the Library of Congress' National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS).

The best way to browse books on the Internet Archive is through our accessible openlibrary.org site. For DAISY books, try this search. For more information about DAISY books, see the Open Library FAQ.
